As someone who subscribed to TNAUK last week after about four years, I'd highly recommend others to pay £39 for a subscription.
One major downside of the service used to be that many of the daily papers weren't uploaded to the site until late afternoon or next day. But that's not the case now. The ability to read publications as html files is great too. I like being able to browse a paper by flicking from header to header to skip through articles.

Subject: [BCAB] Announcement - National Talking Newspapers and Magazines
This announcement is from John.
Just a short note to tell you about accessible newspapers and magazines on your mobile or PC.
So many blind people miss out on information about what is available and it's a real shame if people just aren't aware that they could, for example, read their daily paper on a mobile with talks, or have it delivered direct to their email box to read on a PC, at the same time as sighted friends read theirs.
we offer all the national daily and weekly papers along with dozens of regional and local titles and over 100 magazines.
Whether you use a PC or phone there are navigation keys that let you skip to new sections and articles so you can skim a magazine or newspaper much as a sighted person would.
We have a new free trial download page at
There you can also get further information about the service and how it works. Any further technical enquiries can be addressed to RNIB's Technology Products and Publications team at:
Alternatively the team can be contacted by phone on: 08459-000015 (local call rate number), or 020-7391 2280.
With good wishes,
Head of Products and Publications at RNIB
